Networks[1]

The characteristics of different transmission media include:

  • speed
  • reliability
  • cost
  • security

Transmission media include:

  • metal conductor
  • fibre optic
  • wireless

An image to learn about pro's and cons about different network media[edit]

I used this image (a screengrab) from a youtube video by the folks at code.org. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZhEf7e4kopM[2]

A good video, which touches more on transmission media and wireless[edit]

Some of the videos I show you don't exactly apply to our learning. This video is EXCELLENT and you should watch it many times.

Do you Understand this?[edit]

If you are still stuck, or have any questions, you may want to ask a question on our discussion board.
